AppFolio | February 03, 2023
On February 2, 2023, AppFolio, Inc. introduced AppFolio AlphaTM, an AI-powered investment management solution meant to provide a unified experience that automatically gathers, standardizes, and displays crucial property management data.
The end goal of this innovation is to give real estate investment managers useful information that they can use to make better strategic decisions.
Manually aggregating property management data for business insights is time-consuming, difficult to manage, error-prone, and impossible to scale. According to a report by Pi Labs, nearly half of the organizations spend 2–3 months a year collecting and organizing data to make decisions. In today's economy, asset managers are more focused on maximizing their investments using measures like occupancy rates, lease expiration, and rent increases.
AppFolio Alpha is a cost-effective alternative to hiring more staff that makes it simple for asset managers to collect and consolidate data, view key metrics for optimizing asset performance, audit performance across multiple portfolios at a glance, generate accurate reports, and meet their objectives.
Nat Kunes, Senior Vice President of Real Estate Investment Management at AppFolio, stated, "Today's real estate investment managers deserve technology that keeps up with the fast pace of the broader real estate industry."
He continued, "AppFolio Alpha enables investment managers to spend less time sorting through scattered data sets and more time uncovering actionable insights with visual KPIs like occupancy rates and lease expirations. We're proud to continue bringing innovations like Alpha to the market so we can help customers better understand potential points of exposure and take action for their business."
